This weekend has been tough, way tougher than I could have imagined. I know it may be cheesy & cliche but as John and I took the last load of things from our old house my heart ached. Not because I'm sad to leave but because it feels like we are closing such a large chapter. I bought my little blue house in 2006 after living in a loft downtown for a year with my friend Katie...she agreed to move in with me (and Faith) and boy did we have fun there. BBQs, Girl's Nights, Lost & Project Runway watch parties and the list goes on. Katie and I shared the house until my engagement in 2010...then John (and Bowie) moved in when we got married. It wasn't until our next chapter of parenthood in 2012 that we realize we were completely out of space. Sawyer may be small but his entourage of plastic playthings has overtaken our abode. It was physically hard for me to call a realtor to put it one the market, how could I leave my first home, the place where I brought my first born home to? We didn't sell our house, we have decided to keep it for an investment (I don't have to say goodbye completely). I never fathomed it would go so fast. We called the rental company on a Wednesday, they viewed and listed it on Thursday and we had it rented one week later. That made it actually real and to our surprise, they needed us out by May 8! So...we jumped and made an offer on the house we'd been stalking for a few weeks and they accepted. I'll save those juicy details for a post when we close in a couple weeks (don't want to jinx it!) For now we are camped out at my parents, with all our belongings in the garage of our new home. It's chaotic and surreal but we feel very blessed and excited. Thank you to our family & friends who helped us move (you know who you are!!), we are beyond appreciative and love you dearly! Thanks to my parents for letting us crash your place, we owe you! I apologize to everyone who has seen me cry like a million times, thanks for not calling me a baby! Bye little blue house, it's been amazing!
